PA’s New Adjutant General now in command
Pennsylvania has a new Adjutant General. Governor Tom Wolf presided over the “Change of Responsibility” ceremony on Saturday at Fort Indiantown Gap in Lebanon County.
The service moved the command of the Pennsylvania National Guard from Major General Wesley Craig to Major General James Joseph.
The duties will put him in charge of the state’s Army and Air Force National Guard units, six state owned veterans homes and the programs available to Pennsylvania’s one-million veterans.
Governor Wolf says he is excited for what lies ahead.
“We rely on them, we need them to do great things for us and I’m very comfortable and confident that they are going to do that,” Gov. Wolf said.
Joseph will be Pennsylvania’s 52nd Adjutant General.
